  1. SC CENTRAL CANCER REGISTRY BLAST JUNE 2013

  2. SCCCR BLAST The SCCCR BLAST is an educational training tool provided as a service to you from the SCCCR. This email communication offers specific updates, clarifications, and Q & A’s concerning coding rules and abstracting principles. All registry reference manuals will be utilized and cited. The BLAST is sent to all SC registrars at the beginning of each month. Topics originate primarily from questions generated from SCCCR quality control activities or from hospital registrars. Or they may stem from changes in standards that need to be communicated in mass. No names will be included, only the question and answer with reference sources. Please contact Kathy Barnes, SCCCR Training Coordinator, with your questions, requests for clarification, or information you have discovered that needs to be communicated to your colleagues.

  10. SCCCR BLAST ACCEPTING 2013 ABSTRACTS / UPDATE ATTENTION . . . SCCCR’s Registry Plus software NAACCR version 13 has been updated. We had planned on accepting 2013 cases June 3, 2013 from your facilities but due to CDC software delays, final date is close but pending.

  11. SCCCR BLAST PROSTATE TS/EXT EVAL CODING ERRORS SCCCR is receiving errors for Prostate/CS Tumor size/Ext Eval. Prostate/CS Tumor size/Ext Eval; coding number 1 being used under CS Tumor size/ext eval when coding CS ext as a 230. Code 1 states: Does not meet criteria for AJCC pathologic staging: No surgical resection done. Evaluation based on endoscopic examination, diagnostic biopsy, including fna biopsy, or other invasive techniques, including surgical observation without biopsy. No autopsy evidence used. Note # 7 states under CS Tumor size/ext eval: For CS Extension - Clinical Extension codes 200 - 240 without prostatectomy assign CS Tumor Size/Ext Eval code 0 as these extension codes are based on physical examination and/or imaging only and NOT biopsy.

  12. SCCCR BLAST SEER TRAINING SITE UPDATE www.seer.training.gov Basic training information is on this site but practice modules with hands-on-exercises have been removed for updating. They were based on older versions of our coding manuals. Please be patient during this process . . . it will be worth the wait! We’ll let you know as soon as it’s available.

  14. SCCCR BLAST 2014 COC REGISTRY / CTR UPDATE NCRA: Meeting CoC Standard 5.1: Test Before January 2015 Deadline Cancer registry managers should note that there are only a few Certified Tumor Registrar (CTR) testing windows open before the January 2015 deadline. To meet this deadline, all cancer registry staff who perform case abstracting at a CoC-accredited program must holda current CTR credential. The National Cancer Registrars Association’s (NCRA) Council of Certification encourages CoC-accredited facilities to begin planning for the deadline by determining who on staff needs to earn the credential.
